Pro-Buhari activist who sued Sam Adeyemi, others over #EndSARS killed by tenant

Kenechukwu Okeke dragged many celebrities to a magistrate court for promoting #EndSARS, especially after the Lekki shooting

The man who sued a number of celebrities after the #EndSARS protest, Kenechukwu Okeke, has been killed allegedly by his tenant in Anambra State.

According to Sahara Reporters, Okeke was said to have been macheted by his tenant along with other assailants numbering seven.

The website reported that witnesses say Okeke was attacked and killed in Nkpor, near Onitsha, Anambra State. His wife, Mrs Blessing Odinakachi Okeke and his daughter witnessed the attack.

Okeke’s wife said: “Kenechukwu Okeke was killed by his tenant. The tenant, Chiadiobi, was living in our house, but when he packed out without our knowledge and asked to be given two months of his rent that he left, we told him he should have notified us that he was packing out.

“My husband was not around the day he came but I told him he packed out of the house without our knowledge and should not be given back any money. He threatened to deal with us, saying he would teach my husband a lesson. I called my husband and told him what the boy said and that he should not come to confront him, since they said he was a bad boy.

“My husband later reported the matter to the Department of State Services and to the police, and he was made to write an undertaking, but he was still coming to terrorize us. Sometimes he would come to our house and break open the gate and come in and pick whatever he wanted to pick.

“One day, he came to our house and my husband confronted him, without knowing that he had many boys with him downstairs, and before my husband could do anything, they macheted him, and the fuel we wanted to pour into our generator, they poured it on him and lit him up, and that was how my husband died.

“That day was Sunday and not everyone was around, and the few people around tried to quench the fire and also stop it from burning our house, and later we took him to hospital in Enugu, and that was how he died.”

Mrs Okeke lamented that since after her husband’s death in October, the family had been left alone with the burden of catering to his burial, just as no mention or quest by any organisation to take up his matter has been heard of.

She said what was more heart-rending was that her husband’s killer; Chiadiobi, was still in the neighbourhood, bragging about having dealt with Okeke, while also confronting her husband’s aged mum.

“He even recently confronted my husband’s mother, warning her that he heard that she is taking the matter up, and was warning her to be careful. The boy is still free, going around and without remorse, and we are just left alone to do the arrangements of the burial.

“Up till now, he has not been arrested, even though we took him to police and DSS, and he was made to write an undertaking that he will not disturb us again, but he has finally killed him. I’m not even understanding the police on this matter. I’m confused. The boy is behaving like he is untouchable, and everyone is saying that he is a bad boy and we should be careful. We live in Nkpor, near Onitsha, Tarzan junction.”

The spokesperson for the state police command, DSP Toochukwu Ikenganyia, told Daily Post the matter had been reported to the police.
